Anderson County will play 31st District champion Owen County in the opening round of the Eighth Region Tournament, Monday, March 3 at Shelby County High School. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Anderson has not played Owen this season but figures to be a strong favorite despite falling in the 30th District championship game.

Anderson appears to have gotten a favorable draw as the Lady Bearcats are in the bracket opposite other regional powers Shelby County, Simon Kenton and South Oldham. However, Anderson also felt it had a good draw a year ago before it was ousted in the tournament opener.
